Well, work in progress Wednesday typically means that some progress of some sort has been made on some sort of project.
I’m here to tell you that I completely failed in that respect and have instead spent the last week planning plans. Hahaha – I really am staying true to my bee knitting type – I’m all over the place over here!
While I was knitting mitered squares to sprinkle into my log cabin blanket, I got intrigued with the possibility of knitting a two color mitered square. So all of my efforts and time were diverted to that front and many attempts of making a neat looking square. I had my a-ha moment on Sunday night have been perfecting the technique every since! And with a new technique, comes the plan of a new project – yay! So I got out my color pencils and graph paper and went to town…and then I needed new yarn to make this vision possible. So yep, not only did I not make any meaningful progress on my currently projects, I managed to start a new project AND buy more yarn. I would hang my head in shame, but I have to keep an eye on the tracking for my new yarn as it makes its way across the country! Hahaha. I’m keeping that project under wraps for now until I actually make some progress on it – ha!
Now I don’t want it to seem like I haven’t done anything for yarn for the past week! No sir! The night before last I was up cleaning the house at 2:00am and some how I ended up in my yarn room, where all of the yarn on the shelves was teasing me. I really need to make some space to store all of the yarns I am dyeing, but the only way to do that is to use up some of the yarn on the shelves (novel concept there!).
I have a TON of Vanna’s Choice yarn and was collecting it for years. So what in the world should I do with all of this yarn? The Wool-Eaters Blanket. of course! The stitches used really gobble up yarn and I hope that the color changes will keep me interested! If I get too bored, I could always finish off the project at a reasonable point and then donate the small blanket to the animal shelter. I’ll see how far I get and go from there! Mission make space on the shelf is underway!
